    Nishiki Prestige speciale

    I'm not sure on this one!!!

    Super small ladies specific road bike. Full Tange chromoly, Suntour drivetrain w/ indexing that works. It'll get new bar tape but its not going to be the $20 variety from my LBS.

    Completely rebuilt including repacking of all bearings, new tires and new bar tape.

    From the pics it looks like Tange 1 stickers. I would have guessed that with the name Prestige that it would have used Tange Prestige tubing. Am I wrong?

    I sold a 1986 Prestige earlier this year for $250 in ready to ride, super clean condition. This model is a really nice bike. You might do slightly better given the indexing and the special womans siz and the Terry type of design. May take longer to find a buyer, but I am going to bump my estimate to $300.

    My 1986 was Tange 2, Infinity tubing.
